NTT's 360-degree broadcast video system recreates live events at home.

People go to live sports games and concerts to be part of the mind-numbing craze, but new virtual reality developments could grant people the same kind of excitement within their homes. Japanese telecoms company NTT partnered up with Dwango to introduce a VR headset that enables people to experience everything they would expect from a live event.

Connected to existing head-mounted displays (HMDs), this 360-degree broadcast video system allows personalized viewing, a way for people to appreciate different angles of the replicated event. Cloud processes and machinations guarantees high-quality and realistic streamed visuals, regardless of where viewers shift their gaze.
